CHRISTMAS STOCKING - BUCILLA




I know its months until Christmas but I found these wonderful Christmas Stockings whilst searching other blogs and I just had to have one.
 
They are made by Bucilla and there are many different designs.  I didnt have to many to chose from as there was only one on Ebay.  I havent been able to source them in Australia as yet but I will keep looking as I intend everyone in the family to have their very own.
 
Its all hand sewing which has been good for me as I can watch the Olympics and sew at the same time.  They are not hard but its time consuming with embroidery and sequins to go on as well as stuffing them to give the 3D effect.
 
I am tickled pink on how he  is coming up........ 
 
Hat and Face - 1st Stage


The kit comes complete with all the felt printed on sheets so all you need to do is cut them out and assemble according to the instruction sheet. Each piece is then appliqued to the base shape and everything is built up bit by bit.





Taking Shape
Santa so far......

 

Hopefully by Christmas I can have a couple of Stockings done for the children and then I can start on Stockings for the adults, cos everyone loves a Christmas surprise.

Wow! Your Santa looks fabulous! Thanks for sharing pictures of the progress. He's a lot of work, but the results are so worth it!

Your Santa stocking is beautiful!!! I have made Christmas ornaments from Bucilla years ago.. also out of felt and sequins. They are still among my favorites on our tree, and they were so much fun to make!
